The Oxo Tower is a building with a prominent tower on the south bank of the River Thames in London. The building has mixed use as Oxo Tower Wharf containing a set of design, arts and crafts shops on the ground and first floors with two galleries, Bargehouse and gallery.

The Museum of London was opened in 1976 as part of the Barbican Estate, using collections previously held by the Corporation at the Guildhall and also items from other collections, including the London Museum, which was located in Kensington Palace. The museum comprises a series of chronological galleries containing original artefacts, models, pictures and diagrams, with a strong emphasis on archaeological discoveries, the built city and urban development and interactive displays and activities for all ages. Fragments of the Roman London Wall can be seen just outside the museum. The prehistoric gallery, "London Before London" and the "Medieval London" gallery have already been updated, and in 2007 a new exhibition on the great fire of London opened. We also saw the Great London Fire exhibition in February 2017.

                                 Camden

Camden Town is laid out as a residential district from 1791 and originally part of the manor of Kentish Town and the parish of St Pancreas, London, Camden Town became an important location during the early development of the railways, which reinforced its position on the London Canal network. The area's industrial economic base has been replaced by service industries such as retail, tourism and entertainment. The area now hosts street markets and music venues.

A boat ride on the Regent canal is a nice experience. We did it in 2013 and again in 2017. From Camden Town to Little Venice- going through the Camden lock.

The Royal Academy of Arts was founded through a personal act of King George III on 10 December 1768 with a mission to promote the arts of design in Britain through education and exhibition.

Hay's Galleria is a building in the London Borough of Southwark situated on the south bank of the River Thames featuring offices, restaurants, shops, and flats. Originally a warehouse and associated wharf (Hay's Wharf) for the port of London, it was redeveloped in the 1980s. 

It is named after its original owner, the merchant Alexander Hay, who acquired the property – then a brewhouse – in 1651.
